^ Oh gawd, Halloween Harry. Classic Apogee tackiness. I think I was at Sea-Tac airport of all places back in '94 when I first stumbled upon a hard copy of it on floppy.


I've been wanting to make a cover of this for a while now. But I don't think I'd be able to match this level of production, even tho the notes aren't 100 percent accurate.

I never understood the urge to "update" video game scores to orchestra arrangements, although as far as those go that one's decent. Super Metroid's original music shines through the primitive sample playback limitations.

True, and I've thought about that. The feedback commentary to that piece claims it's the best version they've ever heard, but maybe that's subjective. I admit that this version seems intentionally grandiose and dynamic, while it might be overlooking the fact that the original 1994 score was probably composed with some refinement in mind. I think the bells in particular feel somewhat sound out of place.

Changing gears a bit...

I don't even listen to metal, but I'd be lying if I said this wasn't getting me pumped. This game as a whole is truly a labor of love.

Sounds kinda like Charlie Clouser or like general stoner metal with some synthy stuff.

I assume it's already in here but since I can't be assed to dig through 19 pages of videos looking for it I'm adding it on the off chance it didn't get posted yet.
